Carmen La Cubana
Information for Carmen La Cubana at Sadler's Wells Theatre, Inner London (Musical). Carmen La Cubana narrates a gripping love story set against the backdrop of 1950s Cuba, at the dawn of the revolution. An opulent tableau designed by Tom Piper shows Cuba as the action develops from the gates of a cigar factory in the Caribbean island's rural south east to the bustling life of the bars and clubs in Santiago and Havana. Inspired by George Bizet's opera Carmen and Oscar Hammerstein II's musical adaptation Carmen Jones. UK Premiere. The show features live music from a talented 12-strong band playing a combination of classical and Latin American instruments, with intoxicating Afro-Cuban rhythms that lend a new flair to the familiar tunes of Bizet. The energetic, pulsating choreography by Roclan Gonzalez Chavez fuses rumba, cha-cha-cha and mambo with a contemporary movement vocabulary performed by a stunning cast of 26, as Carmen's fight for independence and freedom is mirrored in the spirit of the Cuban revolution. The production was described as ?truly electrifying' (Le Figaro), and ?a breathtaking production' (Le Parisien) when it received its world premiere at the The Th??tre du Chatelet in Paris in 2016.
Director Christopher Renshaw. Music Alex Lacamoire (music arranger and orchestrator). Choreographer Roclan Gonzalez Chavez. Other Norge Espinosa Mendoza (script writer). Lyrics Norge Espinosa Mendoza. Other Stephen Clark (script writer). Design Tom Piper.
